Keeping your dog fit and healthy
Once we have learnt a little bit about your dog via phone or email, a home visit is scheduled to fully assess and get to know your dog with the designated walker in your area. We can then learn where you’re at with all aspects of training and what motivates your individual dog, including any specific commands.
Hour long morning and midday walks are offered on weekdays with pick up and drop off from your home. Walks can be arranged on an ad hoc or regular basis. The aim is to build up a strong relationship between the walker and your dog and to maintain a harmonious pack. No more than 4 dogs are ever walked in a group.
These are sometimes preferable for more fearful dogs, for bitches in season or for puppies who are building up their recall skills and up to the duration of an hour long group walk. Once we are satisfied that they are ready to go off lead with a group walk we can introduce them the the older group.
For very young puppies we offer a pet visit service where we come round to play, let them out for their business, feed them and begin to build a bond with them until they are ready for short walks. Then in collaboration with you, we will walk them on the lead for the appropriate amount of time for their age, eventually working on their recall and your commands. Again this will be one designated walker throughout to maintain continuity and build trust.
